Got a few cans in a trade. Was supposed to be ~4 weeks old. Drank out of the can every time, as per instructions on the can. Was a sweet, hop forward ale. Great, resinous hoppy mouth-feel. Extremely consistent hop profile and drink-ability. Not too heavy on the stomach, which was nice also! Great IIPA!

Lucky enough to have tried this canned wonder. Love the citrus notes and pine flavor. Best beer I've ever had.

There is nothing like fresh Heady. Amazing aroma that hits you right in the face. Itís not over the top with bitterness like a lot of double IPAs. Overall, it is a perfect balance.

Pours hazy light orange. Big pine, peach mango pineapple notes on the nose. Thick, sticky dank hops. Medium full on the palate, piney bitter hops up front, leading to a bitter hoppy fruity finish. Excellent

Heady Topper lived up to the hype. Fantastic IIPA. What can be said about it that hasnít already been said? Itís the perfect beer. Even the can is a work of art. Insane peach/orange color, ridiculously dank aroma, and an orgasmic blend of hops. Perfect amount of bitterness, finishes clean with a pleasant floral aftertaste. Considered moving to Vermont after the last sip. Cheers.

I've had Pliny and now I've had Heady! I'm gonna have to say... Damn they're both good! This one has HUGE hop aroma but such a sweet flavor. Super duper smooth on the palate. This just sneaks past Pliny as the #1 IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Hazy light amber orange color with a frothy off-white to light tan head. Beautiful aroma with tons of citrusy and tropical fruit hop character. Flavor is a bit more subdued with the sweetness, but with a sharp bitter kick. Oily on the palate with bitterness lasting long into the finish. Great IPA, but not quite spectacular for me.

Hard to take your nose away from the unreal citrus hop explosion that permeates through to the last drop. Fantastic hoppy smoothness on the tongue that really does make you want to crawl into the can

This is a great double IPA plain and simple. To me not the best beer on earth but a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
